King’s Birthday Weather Forecast: Here’s the Latest For the 2024 Long Weekend

In most parts of Australia, the King’s Birthday public holiday is the next long weekend in the calendar. If you’re wondering what the weather will bring for the King’s Birthday long weekend (it is a weekend that often calls for a short getaway, after all), we’ve pulled together a summary of the forecast ahead.

Here’s what you can expect from the weather for the public holiday ahead.

When is the King’s Birthday in 2024 and which states observe it?

So here’s the thing: King Charles’ birthday is not actually on the date we choose to observe it as a holiday. The public holiday date also varies across the different Australian states and territories.

The King’s Birthday falls on the second Monday of June, which this year is Monday the 10th. New South Wales, ACT, Victoria, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and South Australia will all observe the public holiday in June. Queensland and Western Australia celebrate it at different times throughout the year.

We’ve written more on this here.
